Wild orangutans live only in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra and are listed as endangered. The peaceful creatures survive by eating bark, leaves, flowers and insects. 'The forests are being chopped down to make room for oil palm, a product used in foods and the cosmetics industry,' Charlie [Hamilton James] said.

From high-jinx in a wheel barrow to slumbering in a hammock, staff at the Borneo animal sanctuary where these primates live do their best to keep them entertained.

Baby Orangutan

This is a baby orangutan in the jungle of Gunung Leuser National Park on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. At this park you're able to get very close to orangutans who live in the jungle but are used to being around people. We saw several different mother/baby pairs over a three-day period. These little guys must already be pretty tough - Mom used both hands and both feet to swing from tree to tree, so junior here had to hold on all by himself as they moved through the canopy.

Ah! :) He wants a hug, I would give him a hug!!

Still trying to figure it all out. I love beautiful things, music, quotes, books and places.

Hug me! Meet Elmo, the fuzzy orangutan baby

His tufts of hair sticking straight up and with what appears to be a big smile on his wrinkled little face, this baby orangutan is ready to take on the world

Baby orangutan at Samboja Lestari

This is Arnold, 4/5 month old, born at Wanariset, the old reintroduction centre from BOS which is now being moved to a new one at Samboja Lestari (its still called Wanariset) Orang utans are at the stake of extinction ! I think we have the obligation to save these beautiful animals and their habitat. One man has dedicated his life to saving orangutans and even the world: Willie Smits. Look at www.williesmits.nl
